The University of Portsmouth is a dynamic and ambitious institution with a track record of success. One of only four universities in the south east of England to achieve a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework, it is also ranked 21st in the 2020 Guardian League Table University Guide, and 113th in the Times Higher Young University World Rankings.

The School of Health and Care Professions, within the Faculty of Science and Health at the University of Portsmouth, is seeking to appoint an outstanding and talented person to support delivery of our pre-registration Operating Department Practice curriculum.

We are seeking a Teaching Fellow or Senior Teaching Fellow to contribute to teaching excellence and innovation in ODP. It would be positive if you have subject knowledge in specialist or advanced clinical practice. The successful candidates will be able to effectively articulate their contribution to improving effective and safe person-centred care in our undergraduate curriculum. This is a 0.8 fte post which will include classroom and simulation based teaching and assessment.

We encourage applications from those with specialist interest in one or more of the following:

  • Experience in the scrub role in a range of different disciplines
  • Anaesthetics for routine and complex patients
  • Resuscitation and transfer of the critically ill
  • Care of specialist patient groups
  • Service user engagement 

A commitment to the provision of a high quality, student focused educational experience is important. Evidence of ongoing professional development supporting contemporary healthcare practice is also key.

We welcome and actively encourage informal visits to discuss the post and to see the simulation facilities for ODP education. To arrange this, please contact Mr Chris Wells, Programme lead for Allied Health and Social Care: chris.wells@port.ac.uk.

Please note that up-to-date appropriate professional qualifications and current registration are a requirement of this role.  

Although the post is available as either a Teaching Fellow or Senior Teaching Fellow, only one appointment will be made. Please note each post has a different person specification/ job description. You should also indicate in the ‘reasons for applying section’ whether you wish to be considered for the Teaching Fellow or Senior Teaching Fellow position.

Please note that this job does not meet the minimum requirements set by UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) to qualify for an employer-sponsored visa and therefore unfortunately we are unable to consider applications from candidates who require sponsorship to work in the UK.  

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons and all appointments will be made on merit. As we are committed to the principles of the Race Equality Charter Mark, we would particularly welcome applications from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community who are currently under-represented at this level in this area.

It is the policy of the University to only accept applications submitted using the University’s application form.

All applications for this position will be processed and conducted in compliance with UK legislation relevant at that time.
